Ok I the way I see it this isn't a bad series. It starts off a little weird, and definitely has its moments of cliche but as a whole it isn't all that bad. I enjoyed all of the slice of life feelings and the stupid cliches for the girls, and the hunting was kind of interesting. But what got to me is how the general idea of this is very half hearted. All of this world's resources are claimed to be from dungeons, and if they're left out too... more>> long alone they turn back into monsters. But then you have to question how the houses, that are built from dungeon drops stay intact. It just became too much for me to suspend my disbelief anymore.

1/5 for plot

4/5 for the writing

5/5 for the TL and ED <<less

I read a big chunk including MTLs of the raw and stopped after that. The sheer number of flaws in this series makes it difficult to read. It's bad for a freshman effort, much less the author's 5th or 6th series that's on this site, most of which have been published now.

The characters are pretty stupid, including MC, who, as another reviewer pointed out, completely ignored the double drop item ring he got.

Biggest problem with this world? There doesn't seem to be any way it would actually work and the... more>> author wasn't very convincing that it has somehow persisted as far as it has. Everything in the world only can come into existence as drop items from dungeons, dungeons are relatively high risk, anything left alone in either a dungeon or the outside world also turns into very powerful monsters. This applies all the way down to trash. Maybe it's resolved somehow later in the story, but that degree of nonsense should be cleared up much earlier. <<less

For those wondering is this novel is different, here's the deal:

-The protagonist is level 1 with F in everything but has a legend status in drops.
-Said legend status lets him get stat boosting items.
-For some god forsaken reason these valuable stat boosting items aren't limited drops like in any normal game, but they're drops from weak skeletons and zombies that any old mook can kill.
-Being Level 1 obviously doesn't prevent him from consuming stat boosting items.
-Guess what happens next.

Also worth noting:
-There is literally no set... more>> up or backstory, and there are literally no descriptive details of the locations, or the world, or anything. Enjoy reading a story in a setting the author can't even be arsed to describe in a few words, if at all.
-Writing is plain and amateurish, translator puts annoying TLNs every few sentences. (TLN: Stop doing this please)
-Up to C8 and only girls have appeared. All seem to gravitate towards our MC for some reason. It's not exactly as gratuitous or blatant as say, World Teacher, but it's still incredibly obvious what's happening here.
-Protagonist has no character or personality to speak of. Neither do any of the characters. Why should I give a sh*t about any of these people?
-It's really boring. Nothing interesting happens.

If you want me to say it any more clearly: it's boring and it's not creative or different either. Don't bother. At least read some sh*tty isekai that has a world to get invested or interested in. Here there is nothing.

P.S. About the translator notes, trying to get immersed in a story while someone else comments on everything happening constantly is difficult. I'm not sure if anyone else has issues with this, but I certainly do. It's disruptive. I appreciate the work translators do, but this stuff really peeves me. <<less

Pretty generic "Transported to Game-like world" setting with one interesting concept; the MC is weak but has cheat-like ability to always get rare-drops. I generally like these cheat-level ability fantasy novels, even when they're just okay, but this one really doesn't do much at all to develope characters or the world. We pretty much get; "There are dungeons and all resources come from drops". My problems with this novel so far are:

1. The MC almost immediately finds a way to stat up and get tons of money. There is no... more>> tension whatsoever.

2. The female characters are one-dimensional to the point of being cardboard cutouts of characters. You have tiny girl with big hammer who cooks and doesn't like bugs. And rabbit girl who is strong and likes carrots. Going on 11 chapter and we have learned nothing else about these characters, one of which the MC is living with.

3. Really? Of all the cool loot items you can give your MC, and he gets a thematically inappropriate and fantastically boring gun? A GUN!? Not only is it dull, but in this fantasy world where it might be considered interesting, nobody seems curious about what it is or where it comes from. It's never addressed. The author doesn't even get interesting with limited ammo or something, the MC spends bullets like they grow on trees, and oh-so-conveniently gets another rare drop of about 500 rounds.

4. The author seems to lose track of his own plot, mixing up what monsters are on which floors of which dungeons and what they drop. The translator points out that it's not a translation mistake but the way it is in the original.

Overall, it's just really not very interesting. The fantasy elements are explained non-chalantly, the non-fantasy elements that should be unique to a fantasy world are ignored, and the characters are generic. <<less

some guys give a review after less than 10 chapter and other blindly follow it. Sight.

After more than 40 chapter I finally wanted to give my own opinion that I hope will help ppl understand what they are reading and how they should read it.

First point, if you come after some battle angry Chinese LN (not that they are bad or anything) but I kindly tell you that it's not for you

... more>> If you want and intricate novel with detective like story or world building, ot's not for you either

What you got there is a simple isekai story and you should just take it as it is

If you don't like the genre, just don't try to read it and rate it, I don't even know why some ppl are so obstinate to down vote isekai novels and Japanese novels in general, are you some sort of cyber racist?

Anyway back to the subject, you got quickly a fluffy ambiance with no tension, you know that there will be no big bad guy and hard core level with danger at every corner

The MC is trying to understand how the word where he is work and tweak is at is advantage to continue his fluffy story

No harem in sight and romance is very soft as of ch 40, I think it will be a slow slice of life with a time leap at the end to finish it. <<less

So the premise is perfectly fine, it's totally workable for an Isekai story... Then the author says "screw it" and tosses it out the window.

Despite starting with the absolute minimum stats possible and being locked at level 1, he goes into a dungeon by himself armed with one little wooden spear and no other equipment and mows down monsters by the hundreds. Already the author has completely destroyed the premise of him being locked in as a super weakling.

Then he finds a way to get stronger and he starts to... more>> really use it... at first... then he gets bored and stops training his stats and instead finds a gun and focuses completely on the gun (why he would focus on a weapon that his stats can't affect and requires consumables items when he has already found a way to increase his base stats, I have no idea).

Then the author introduces some disgusting enemies just to justify the existence and use of the gun.

Then I got fed up with the author not fleshing out any story, any purpose, any intention of getting stronger, any interesting RPG elements, and stopped reading.

I suggest you pass this one up. <<less

Its fun to read and with a new concept. I dont get it how can you form an opinion after just reading a couple of chaps. If you dont like it just stop reading.

The chapters are short but sweet. We have a dense hero and dwarf san who sleeps in the dungeon initially only moving after hero bought her a house. The story revolves around their day to day life and the evolution of hero.

An otherworld novel that start differently, compared with what I usually read (MC came from the drop of slime!). The story is light without any real conflict, tell us about mc's every days life in otherworld. Other characters are cute and heartwarming (except several who are not important but annoying).

It has simple game system stat, but without number (except lvl). It use A, B, C, etc. The simple stat make it easier to understand and comparing rather than stat which full of numbers.

It looks promising and interesting, try to read... more>> it if you get bored with usual otherworld novel.

Corcerning its negative point about lacks of physical desciption (about the otherworld), its true, but I don't think it's so bad. Wether it's bother you so much or not, you will only know after you red it.

... and the translator's blog looks nice and comfortable to read in my mobile phone. <<less

Dont bother, if you only want fluffy story in another world with OP MC theres plenty that is as good or better than this, all of the character is at most 2 dimensional, the MC is meh, change him with any other average random dude and it will be the same if not better, the author is also often very inconsistent, from the content of the story and the way it was delivered I could tell he (or she for all I care, I doubt tho) was young (or should... more>> I say immature?) and inexperienced

I've read literally over hundred of WN/LN also read hundreds of manga etc, plenty of them start out decent or really good with potential of getting even better but end up face planting, so this kind of sloppy WN I dont have much hope of the future, dropped <<less

Very sweet and relax read for any of you who wants some peace of mind after reading those novels that make you want to kill the author. Romance is there and it is not forced.

MC and Emily are very cute together, not to mention the clerk Elza as well.

Definitely on my reading list.

Story with world rules that makes no sense, characters that act like they miss half of their brain that appear and disapear when story needs it. Overall 3 since it's viable to read if you don't focus on details too much.


More you read it, more it gets absurd. Author tries to build story based on rules he himself made, which ends... looking weird.


Stopped at ch37. Unable to read more of that.

The story at first seemed to be good but it went downhill after the use of guns in the story. In your typical another world story you would expect sword skills and the like but all the MC does is use a gun and that gets boring very fast. I don't recommend it but if you like a gun type of story then go for it.

My biggest complain is that the author is really not good minimaxing. All that talk about increasing grind efficiency, while ignoring 2x drop ring. It's damn 4x increase for bullet production!!!

Also, MC ignores melee weapons. Oh, he also maxes stats one by one instead of balanced increase. And for some reason, his low endurance have no negative effect on his ability to fight/grind for prolonged periods of time.

He ignores the possibility of strengthening his flatmate through drop-sharing cart for far too long. Well, it might not work because it's possible... more>> that seed are not bound to the one who killed monster, but it's worth to check. And his money-grinding speed would increase significantly.

So it's really hard to believe all that efficiency talk by author. <<less
